Did people bathe in Bath

The Roman baths found in Bath, England, were originally built on a Celtic holy site over a period of 300 years, beginning in 70 C.E. The structures include a hot bath, a tepid or medium bath, and a frigid bath complex. Though the ancient city lies buried beneath it, the modern city of Bath is also renowned for its hot springs, which once warmed the Romans and now offer a relaxing bath in this resort town.
